I'm really not too sure if all of the hype and carry on about this movie is worth the energy. Previous reviews and comments I have read elsewhere claim this film is disturbing and degrading to women.
To me it wasn't quite hardcore porn, but then again a little more than softcore.
OK, yeah sure there were naked women getting killed, some quite explicitly, but why cant people see this movie for what it is. B grade underground porn with the intent to shock. Obviously someone has wanted to take a step away from the normalties of regular porn, and try to get a controversial reputation. He's also gone for the artistic approach, but that is more annoying that interesting. Also the picture on DVD goes from wide screen to full screen, to blurry etc, and the subtitles have a tendancy to disappear below the screen or inside the movie, also, the fonts are prone to change, and I've heard that the whole thing was made in England, dubbed (very poorly apparently) into Polish, and then given english subtitles.
The money I paid to see this movie probably cost more than what it cost to make it, so I guess I'm the sucker.
Part 2 is pretty much the same, though I think the director may have broken up with his girlfriend before making this one, because the dialogue is pretty resentful toward women.
All in all, dont expect much here, at best The Fantom Kiler trilogy are movies most suited to sitting around with the boys, some drinks, and having a laugh. Serious horror fans will hate them, and the raincoat brigade will want more.
